2015 Winter Training

Under 14s and above

It is now time again to begin preparations for the winter training program at Queenscliff SLSC. At the moment the ski squads are well underway with strong turn outs each Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Slen has also started learn to ski sessions on Thursday afternoons and it is great to see our Under 17 girls beginning this process. It is also pleasing to see some taking advantage of Ian Poole each Tuesday evening at the Harbord gym. We will commence Saturday training at 2:30pm on the 30th of May. I would like this session to be a large turn out to kick of the season. Please also confirm if you can attend as we may organise a BBQ following training. Tuesday sessions will commence on the 2nd of June.


Please email me your commitment to Training sessions ASAP. This will help me tailor my program according to the needs of the group. Please note that Winter sessions in general are not of a high intensity and the group will stick together. Nobody should feel out of their depth and all on this lest are welcome. Should you know of others, please feel free invite them to join us.


After gathering some data from our information session a few weeks ago, we now look to get started on the boards. For many of you this Winter is the perfect opportunity to learn and develop on the malibu (long) boards for the season ahead. For others it’s a chance to develop skills and build for season 2015/16. We will start with two sessions per week for the remainder of term 2 and move to a full program at the beginning of the Term 3 School term.


For all the new Under 14 competitors, you are now under my guidance and it is my hope that you will all take up this opportunity to paddle early on. We will be able to provide many with club boards as you learn, however, in order for this to take place we ask that you remain consistent with training and commit to at least one session per week. Winter training can be a very enjoyable time but it is imperative that we have as many people on the water at each session as possible.
